You Talk to Yourself

brain stuff Mar 02, 2021

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who talk to themselves out loud and those who talk to themselves in their heads. I remember the first time I heard someone talking to themselves out loud. I was a teenager and it was at the grocery store. I thought the woman was talking to me, so I asked her to repeat herself. She wasn't even aware that she was doing it, so she was as confused as I was and didn't answer me. After noticing it that first time, I started paying attention whenever...

Don't be an Advice ATM

boundaries Mar 01, 2021
 

Are you someone who has always been asked for advice? In this week’s solo episode, I tackled the issue of setting boundaries around when to actually give it. Many people will ask for your advice but they do not really need it, they just need someone to listen to them, so you can be empathic and let them know you want to support them, and that’s it.  No need to give advice that you know they will never follow anyway.  

I used to dispense advice like an ATM,...

Boundaries

boundaries Feb 23, 2021

Have you ever noticed how much difficulty most people have with setting boundaries? And when I say boundaries, I am talking about physical, emotional, sexual, financial, energetic, and time boundaries. Maybe I am taking the whole subject a little too far, but I think boundaries are everything, especially when it comes to personal freedom and living life on your terms. Even if you don't consider yourself much of a people pleaser, you probably give others more of your time, energy, effort, and...

Unnecessary Suffering

blog boundaries Feb 16, 2021

So much of human behavior is tied to morality, even if we aren't a card-carrying member of any known religion. Be a good boy. Good girls don't. We want to do something because of the way it will make us feel. And we are shamed out of doing it with the threat of feeling the opposite. Manipulating the feels is big business. The music I grew up listening to had lyrics like "How can it be wrong when it feels so right?' and I heard plenty of marketing slogans like "If it feels good, do it.' No...

Be Your Own Coach

coaching mental health Feb 09, 2021

Most people who would benefit from therapy, don't actually go. There are a number of reasons. Unfortunately, working with a mental health professional is still stigmatized in most places. People don't understand the value of therapy or how it works. Then there is the access to care issue. Not everyone has transportation or childcare or the money to pay for therapy, even if the cost is limited to a co-pay. Most therapists are still able-bodied, straight, white, middle-class women. Happily,...

So Many Ideas, Not Enough Time

adhd mastery Feb 02, 2021

I'm a wordsmith. Words and the pictures, stories, metaphors, and analogies that I create from them are my playthings. There are so many things I just can't do. My short term memory sucks, I have zero sense of direction, my math skills are weak and I have a helluva time following directions of any kind, especially written ones. I could go on, but the point it this- I excel in the realm of verbal skills, at something like the 97th percentile on the standard IQ test. There is nothing I love...
